Fandangling Review & GIVEAWAY

I was sent a complimentary Fandangling for myself (and mostly Sydney) to review. We had picked the Safari set and it is super cute!  When I first opened the package, I thought they were small, but then I remembered they were going on the fan, and they are a great size for that!  Sydney approved of them quickly - she hugged them all.  

As soon as Daddy got home, we put him to work.  Ok, it wasn't hard work...setup takes less than 5 minutes (including distractions from Sydney).  These cute stuffed animals have a string and a square of velcro that attaches to another square of velcro you put on the fan (all velcro included).  The velcro goes on the top side of the fan blade, so when you take off the animals no one can see the velcro squares.  If you have an older child (Sydney is 1 year) you will be VERY glad that these animals velcro on...she always wants to hold one!

I think the idea of the Fandanglings is great and they have done a wonderful job making the setup super easy!  Not only are they cheaper than a lot of stationary crib mobiles, but I think babies will enjoy these more.  When Sydney was a baby all she wanted to do was watch fans.  I wish we had this then!  Also, having a fan in the room where your baby sleeps has been proven to reduce the risk of SIDS by more than 70%!! Check out this article on SIDS.

Fandangling is a great company.  They give 10% of their proceeds to charities such as: Animal Friends and Build.  They are also offering my readers 20% off of your order, just use code FANDANGLING10.  Also, they are giving away a free Fandangling for ONE lucky reader!!

Contest Rules:  One entry for each completed task (comment seperately).  Please include a working email so that I can contact you - If I don't hear back from the winner in 48 hours, a new winner will be picked.  Winning comment will be chosen by a random number generator on Thursday, March 4th at Noon (CST).
